For Sunday: the Cars ask us to “Shake It Up”


Okay, students of Rock & Roll Academy: whatever happened to rock & roll? Did it die in the 1960s? Were the Doors rock & roll? What about the later Beatles? What about Talking Heads?

 

 

I think there are still a couple of bands that are playing something that Dick Dale and Bill Haley would recognize. Maybe the Black Keys, nowaydays. And maybe even this song, from the early 1980s, from the Cars.

 

 

Shake it up!

    I think rock took over, then heavy rock, then heavy metal. After that came slash metal, grunge and so on. The good ones live forever (songs I mean) whatever their genre, don’t they.
